Why couldn’t he start with himself first?

A man armed with a gun killed eight people at a restaurant in the town of Uhersky Brod, in the eastern Czech Republic near Zlin, a Czech Interior Ministry spokesman said Tuesday.

“The shooter is also dead,” the spokesman said. The interior minister is flying to the area now, he said.

Authorities don’t yet know the identity or motivation of the shooter, the spokesman said. However, at this time they do not believe the incident is terror-related.

Milan Chovanec, the Czech interior minister, said on Twitter: “According to available news, this is not a terrorist attack, but an act committed by aberrant individual.”

A spokesman for the local police told CNN that the shooting started at 12:30 p.m. local time in the Druzba restaurant in central Uhersky Brod.

“There was a massive shooting in the restaurant, the attacker is thought to be a local man in his 60s,” the spokesman said.
